Are 850s a common sight down there? NEVER seen one here! Only the deluxe 95 type! Sounds like a nice colour!

Tom, yeah they are quite common here; a cross between a cool-white and a Daylight. They have a blue tint but it's not as blue as Daylight 6000/6500K.

Made by Narva apparently.

The tubes **may** be 2003. I will come back and confirm these when I have the missing info on Narva.

I can now confirm these as August 2004.

Wish our Crompton tubes were still made by reputable European lampmakers!
